Access codes provide an exclusive gateway for your customer to view their photos, maximizing both convenience and privacy for your customers and your subjects. To set your access code, just go to your Settings tab in your gallery...

...And then go to your Gallery Access and Expiration panel.

Access codes do have some restrictions. They must be between 3-20 characters, and may only contain upper or lower case letters, numbers, and dashes. Codes are unique to each gallery - in the event that a code has been used by another PhotoDay gallery, you will not be able to use that code yourself. You can also use the Generate Code option, which will automatically produce a code of random characters if you wish to forego creating your own.

Once you set an access code, customers will be able to text it to the PhotoDay short code 907-38 to subscribe, receive AdvancePay access, or full access to a live gallery.
